Spent the past two weeks glued to a big screen in your local park? Wondering what next after Sunday? You could always swap one outdoor screen for another. From Thursday August 16, the National Theatre is turning its fly tower into a massive outdoor cinema for a movie mini-season, kicking off with ‘This is Spinal Tap’. It’s showing six films, which all have a behind-the-scenes theme. So Woody Allen’s ‘Bullets over Broadway’ is on Sat Aug 18 and Vincent Price in the Shakespearian horror-fest ‘Theatre of Blood’ closes the season on Sat Aug 25. Films are free and begin at 9pm, with some deckchair seating for early birds. American Express card-holders, you get the VIP treatment, with your own seating area, fancy wireless headphones and popcorn.
